Dodgers sit Grandal for Game 2 after rough night
MILWAUKEE — Yasmani Grandal, coming off a historically bad night behind the plate, wasn’t in the Dodgers‘ starting lineup for Game 2 of the National League Championship Series, paving the way for Austin Barnes to catch Hyun-Jin Ryu on Saturday.
Grandal is 2-for-17 with seven strikeouts in the postseason thus far. On Friday, in a 6-5 loss to the Brewers from Miller Park, he committed two errors and two passed balls within the first three innings.
The Dodgers made another lineup change in their outfield, starting Yasiel Puig, who has reverse splits, in right field against Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Wade Miley. They also sat Cody Bellinger, giving them two prominent left-handed hitters — along with Max Muncy — to utilize off their bench.
